WW: The Worst Gift EVER!

Remember back in sixth grade when having a boyfriend meant having someone to write silly little notes to that you folded into weird origami like shapes?  I don’t know how it was at other middle schools, but at Peiffer Middle School the best thing about having a boyfriend was getting to wear his Perry Panthers pull over jacket that had his last name plastered across the back.  Mine read “TEMSEY” and I thought I was so awesome to be wearing it.  Truth be told I was a geeky eleven year old with huge round framed glasses and braces and he didn’t look any better.  But I was still in puppy love with him and so when Christmas came and he presented me with a small thin rectangular box I was ecstatic.  Every girl knows what is “suppposed” to come in a small thin rectangular box…..a bracelet!!  And any bracelet would have thrilled me. A charm bracelet, a hand made friendship bracelet, a slap bracelet…… but that was not what was in my box.  When I opened my box I found something that looked like this.

Except my name was spelled correctly with two L’s.  Imagine what the face of a geeky sixth grader looks like when all their hopes of a cute bracelet from their boyfriend has been crushed and instead they are looking at a hunk of wood with their name carved in it.  I tried to pretend like I liked it….. I really tried.  But what does an eleven year old need a key chain for anyways?  It’s not like I had a car, heck I didn’t even have my own house key yet.  And so this was my worst gift EVER….. Dustin doesn’t have to worry because I don’t think he could ever get me something worse than this even if he tried.  And just in case your wondering that “relationship” didn’t last much past Christmas.

Random List of Other Bad Gifts:
a porcelain baby doll with a green face
a money clip with no money in it
a hideous turtle neck sweater
And a bad gift that still to this day cracks me up every time I think about it….. a big black rubber rat…. that my Grams Rusnak put in my ex-boyfriend’s stocking one Christmas.  I think it’s safe to say she didn’t like him!

    Nothing worse than a mis-spelled wooden keychain. I might have to “surprise” my husband with one of those this Christmas as a gag gift! LOL
